In Abu Dhabi Fuel to Be Received While Growing Fish

24.03.2016

The project of the Integrated Energy System and agriculture seawater (ISEAS) in Abu Dhabi has
earned a pilot plant that can simultaneously produce food and biofuel.
The technology includes several stages. First, in the swimming pools with fry and plankton
the sea or ocean water is pumped. Then the water level of salinity is slightly lowered, pumping
the water to the plantation of halophytes and mangrove - plants tolerant to salt. From there
the water is directed to the filter, and then returned to the ocean. The remaining on the
plantations silt and humus will be used to produce biofuel. In this case all the energy required
for the process, will be provided by the solar panels.

The plant, developed by a consortium of Arab SBRC led by Masdar Institute, will help to grow   the fish without any harm to the environment. Typically, the water from the aquaculture is not   suitable for discharge into the sea, as the nutrients remaining in the water disturb the   ecosystem, and the sewage treatment plant is much more expensive than the proposed   technology.
